Expression of Support for Greece

The Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) would like to express its support for Greece and by extension the European Union in their joint position on the forced expulsion of refugees and economic migrants by Turkey towards Greece and Europe.

The GCM remains concerned about the fate of these refugees and economic migrants that Turkey is forcefully expelling from its borders armed with false hopes and in clear contravention of its agreement with the European Union. Greece faces a crisis on its borders not of its own making.

European leaders have promised unequivocal support and now must deliver on that commitment as Greece’s efforts in managing this latest wave is not only a task it undertakes for its own sovereignty, but the sovereignty of the whole of Europe.

Με το λάδι οι γυναίκες μαγείρευαν, το χρησιμοποιούσαν ως καλλυντικό ή το έβαζαν σε λυχνάρια για να φωτίσουν το σπίτι όταν έπεφτε η νύχτα. Ακόμα, οι γιατροί θεράπευαν πληγές και οι αθλητές άλειφαν το σώμα τους. Ήταν βέβαια και το βραβείο για τους νικητές στους αγώνες των Παναθηναίων, της μεγάλης γιορτής προς τιμήν της θεάς Αθηνάς. Άλλωστε εκείνη ήταν που πρόσφερε αυτό το σπουδαίο δώρο στην πόλη.Με το θέμα «Ελιά, το δώρο μιας θεάς..» η Ελληνική Κοινότητα Μελβούρνης συνεχίζει το πολύ επιτυχημένο και ιδιαίτερα αγαπητό στα παιδιά Πρόγραμμα Σχολικών Διακοπών.
